Goldman Sachs publishes a reading list every fall highlighting some of its global employees’ book recommendations.
This year’s collection spans historical deep-dives, motivational autobiographies, and science fiction. Last year’s list included a similar range of works, but featured fewer recommendations compared to Friday’s list.
Here are the books recommended by 29 Goldman Sachs employees for this fall:
“The Road to Character” by David Brooks
Picked by: Dane Holmes, Human Capital Management, New York
Holmes said: “By recounting the journeys of bold-faced names from throughout history, Brooks reminds us that the pathway to character isn’t always a smooth and straight one.”
“Daisy Jones & The Six” by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Picked by: Beth Hammack, Corporate Treasury, New York
Hammack said: “The characters are completely captivating as is the era, their relationships and the shifting perspectives. It’s got it all – sex/drugs/rock and roll, pursuit of perfection, and female empowerment.”
